The Guru Within

79 pages
Integral Yoga Publications

Throughout history there have always been human beings who felt there must be more to life and they sought a higher wisdom or spiritual enlightenment. Many have found themselves in need of someone who has traveled the spiritual path successfully and could guide them toward the understanding they were seeking and to the Guru within.

Sri Swami Satchidananda was one of the first Yoga masters to bring the classical Yoga tradition to the West. Invited to America in 1966 by iconic pop artist Peter Max, he taught Yoga postures, meditation, and a compassionate vegetarian lifestyle. In 1969, he opened the Woodstock Festival and became known to an entire generation as "the Woodstock Guru." Swami Satchidananda founded the global Integral Yoga organization, Satchidananda Ashram-Yogaville and the Light Of Truth Universal Shrine (Lotus.org). He is the author of Integral Yoga Hatha, To Know Your Self, The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Beyond Words, The Living Gita, and The Golden Present. He is also the subject of the documentary, Living Yoga: The Life and Teachings of Swami Satchidananda. (For more information visit: swamisatchidananda.org).
